New Jersey Developer Awarded State Permit for Offshore Farm

Text size: A A

Fishermen's Energy, a Cape May, N.J.-based offshore wind energy developer, said April 6 that it has received permits from New Jersey regulators to build a six-turbine, 24-MW wind farm off the Atlantic City coast. Daniel Cohen, president of the firm, says the pilot project “will be the catalyst needed to jump-start” the state's offshore wind industry. A spokeswoman says the firm has received two coastal permits and a water quality certificate and is expecting Clean Water Act approval from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in May. Transmission line installation is set to begin in December, with the pilot project set to come on line in September 2012. Plans are also under way to build a 350-MW utility-scale project in four years. Also set to start construction this year is the larger Cape Wind offshore farm in Massachusetts Bay.
